Photo Credit: SUBMITTED - People danced and had a great time at last year's Oktoberfest Kickoff Party in the Mount Angel Festhalle.The Oktoberfest Kick-off Party is on Sept. 6, in the Mount Angel Festhalle - Biergarten, 500 S. Wilco Highway in Mount Angel. Festivities begin at 7 PM.

The dinner is $25 and includes a half Bar-B-Que Chicken dinner with all the fixings. This is a perennial favorite! The Knights sell thousands of these dinners at Oktoberfest each year. Beer, wine and soft drinks are included in the price of the ticket.

The full line up of beers for the Biergarten will be available at Kick-Off including the Mount Angel Maibock. Mount Angel Maibock is being brewed exclusively for the 2014 Oktoberfest in Mount Angel by Two Kilts Brewing Co. The Kick-Off Party will be the first time this will be available to the community, come taste for yourself. Widmer’s Hefeweizen, Upheaval IPA, Okto, Budweiser, Beck’s Oktoberfest and Stella Artois’s Cidre will be offered along with a selection of northwest wines.

Dance to the music of the S-Bahn, a German festival and dance band from Canada. S-Bahn plays a wide array of music designed to keep you dancing. They were great fun at last year’s Kick-Off and are back by popular demand.

Tickets are on sale at Mount Angel 76 Station, Tiny's Tavern and Bochsler Hardware, in Mount Angel or on-line at: www.oktoberfest.org/events/kickoff-party/.
